We wish you well during this pandemic. We are all learning how to cope, and our thoughts are with you. We keep up with some of you on social media, and it's good to see your faces. We have just learned that in Houston the virus is spreading quickly via fueling your vehicle, so don't forget to sanitize your hands during that process.
It seems we are busier than ever here with projects. The phones are ringing, the mail is being delivered and picked up, and for the most part the website is working, so John is keeping busy with pulling, packing and shipping. He's also restringing (and repairing) a larger amount of harps than what is typical. People are pulling out their instruments and finding joy and peace in playing music.
I, (Mary) teach piano at a music academy which transitioned overnight to the use of zoom, having to learn it with immediacy. My own private students are still on FT, Skype or FB Messenger Video.
Reba is spending time with her grandchildren!
We are rebuilding both our websites from scratch. As you know, we were hacked on February 2 and are still recovering from that incident. The new sites could be up and running within 6 weeks. We may have Reba and all her grandchildren help us populate the products, as migration is not possible!
Thank you for your patience with us!
We have time to weed, and have the beginnings of a bird sanctuary in progress (John and I are members of the Houston Audubon Society). We are experimenting with different recipes, and hope that we will be able to procure all the ingredients! So far tomato soup, pumpkin leek soup, and yellow pea soup have been good. Squash soup not so good. Bread was a disaster.
We will start putting up some tutorials you may find helpful and enjoyable. For now, we searched for some of our old videos and referenced them below.
